    Not unless they suddenly have 13 million employees in the state and there's half of that. For it to cost $1.2 billion when the increase ( for an employer of $90 per employee) would mean there are 13 million employees in the state.
    That's creative accounting......
    Florida QuickFacts from the US Census Bureau

    In Pennsylvania, an employer can pay upwards of $800-1000 per employee based on experience. $100 looks great from that perspective...

    My rate in Maine has just doubled. I have no employees except myself and my wife and will never, ever be able to collect.

    So, another 1.5% of my income flushed down the drain while my income stays the same. Hard to keep giving to charity when the government keeps grabbing and wasting it.

    They give Unions a pass on the Caddilac tax until 2018.

    Maybe it is time to start charging companies that hire union workers a
    higher rate towards unemployment.

    A lot of the trade unions members spend a lot of time on unemployment.
    They work for 6 months and collect and work on the side the other 6 months.

    I have a friend who collected the last 3 monts of 2008, 11 of 12 months in
    2009 and he is telling me that his extentions will cover him for the remainder of 2010.

    I bet over the past 20 years most of my trade/union working friends
    have collected for a combined total of 8+ years.

    I believe that a company who has employed the same person for 20+
    years "No time on unemployment" should pay a lower unemployment cost than the companies who hire union workers for 6 months of the year.

    Each person should have an individual unemployment account.
    If you lose a job after 20+ years your account would have more money
    in it than the guy who spends 6 months on unemployment each year.

    Why should the guy who has worked 9 months have the same
    length of time on unemployment as the guy who's company has paid
    into it for 20+ years?

    I agree...what you wrote isn't opinion, it's fact...and very sad to boot.
